Integrate Hollywood

Filed under: Politics — mlah @ 9:52 pm

notice how many celebrities are active in politics? oh, i’m not just talkin ’bout ‘ah-nold, or even hius predecessor ronnie reagan. or even hanoi jane back in the day.

look at the plethora (i recently saw ‘the three amigos’ again) of stars who are out and taking a stance on issues.

of course, recent memory calls to mind the dixie chicks natalie maines and her anti war stance. she was ashamed george bush was from texas. well, chicky, 2/3rds of texas went to gwb in the election, so you are not the a-typical texan. but what i find most interesting is that she was surprised by the response.

not from gwb, but fans, and the generel public. and then came the leftist outcry that she should be able to say anything she wants with impunity. people should not boycott her for airing her views.

??? you would think that an entertainer would understand the principle that what comes out of her mouth affects her job and pay status.

but she’s old news, and there were tons o entertainers opposed to the war.

i’ve got scarlett johanson and nicole kidmans pics up here, i have no idea what their politics are, i just put them up so i’ll have nice pics as my background at work tomorrow.

Martin Sheen protests our war in Iraq

sean penn went to baghdad. susan sarandon and that robbins guy…. the sheen guy from west wing thinks he really is the president. somebody slap him please. and please, be sure and take a look at the SITE i found the sheen pic on.

ever notice how they are all on the left? except for who? ah-nold, tom selleck, dennis miller, and sam malone. virtually everybody in the entertainment industry is a liberal. (and i’m including bill o’relley on the left)

hmmmm. i had a notion the other day. yes i do have moments every once in a while. and i kind of thought about fairness of work. y’all know, hiring practices and all. i figure, since around 2 thirds of cali foreign ya went left in the last election, that the law of averages would work out to around one third of people in any industry there being conservative. right?

how did this happen?

maybe liberal industry hiring managers are hiring like minded poeple? maybe on purpose? if not, then how did the near absense of oppositition happen?

wonder what would happen if ANY other industry decided to hire people based on ‘like’-ness. what if bill gates was to only hire conservatives? would there be an outcry?

lets go a step further. what if the late marge schott had decided to only hire caucasian athletes? outcry? you betcha. what if ANY industry decided to start making employment decisions based on some predetermined factor settled on by management/ownership? gender, religion, height, it wouldn’t matter.

they of course would get the judicial smackdown.

so why not hollywood?

Nicole Kidman at the Oscars

at the very least, shouldn’t there be some semblance of a counter balance? say a second hollywood? no, i’m not talking about bollywood. i guess i have to be happy that the brits and the aussies are starting to make some good films. i don’t like them all, and some of them are liberal too i’m sure, but i hope that a few of them are not.

we should send the courts in. integrate hollywood.

isn’t that a funny concept?

special extra, look at that dress to the right! how is that staying on? i think there need to be an investigative commssion launched to find the answer, and i volunteer myself as lead inspector. if i get anywhere with this line of b.s., i’ll let y’all know.

  2. James Woods is also on the right-he was pretty vocal back when Susan and Tim thought they were spokespeople for America (NOT!!!!)

  4. I’d have preferred Fred Thompson to Cheney. Not that it matters much.

    I still haven’t forgiven Susan and Timbo for their infamous “bring the Haitian AIDS victims to America” plea in the middle of the Oscars some years back. I thought then (back when I was a registered Democrat – and SHUT UP! I’ve reformed) that they had some nerve. I yelled at the TV, “Excuse the hell outta me, Sue and Timmy. You’re the ones with money. Have you done anything to help the Americans without insurance living with AIDS? No? And you still want to bring Haitians with AIDS here? Fine, let them live at your house and you take care of them.”

    Where was I going with this? I totally forgot.

  5. Personally, I was thrilled with Natalie Maines comments. I mean, supporting Bush is fine if you are the type of person who likes to discriminate against people based on sexual orientation, race, gender, and economic status. It also helps if you support sending our troops to war, to die, for no real reason. What did Iraq do anyway? They were of no threat ot us one day, and the next good ol’ W decides that he has not harmed enough innocent people for his liking and declares war. The rest of the world hates him, and he is starting to ride the last nerve of the people in America. Well, excpet for Toby Keith and his cousin kissin’, “boot in your ass” politics. Sorry guys, but this is not what America is supposed to be, and I for one am sick of seeing this country go to hell, or to Crawford. Pretty sure they are one in the same.
